The aircraft features a flat-floor cabin with enough room for nine passengers. It is capable of flying nonstop between various destinations, such as Los Angeles and New York or Geneva and Riyadh. The Citation Latitude is a popular choice for a wide range of uses, including corporate travel, charter flights, personal trips, air ambulance services, ISR, utility transport, aerial surveys, flight inspections, training, and other specialized missions.

The Citation Latitude midsize business jet, with a four-passenger range of 2,700 nautical miles (5,000 km) at high-speed cruise, distinguishes itself from the competition with its blend of comfort and efficiency. The aircraft has a class-leading take-off field length of 3,580 feet at Max Takeoff Weight, providing operators with greater range out of short fields. Inside, the Citation Latitude offers an unrivalled cabin experience featuring the most open, spacious, bright, and refined cabin environment in its category.
